The Prime Minister has ramped up his attack on Labor, as he faces the prospect of defeat on a bill to get more refugees off Nauru and Manus Island.

Labor, the Greens and crossbenchers have teamed up to legislate faster medical treatment for refugees in offshore processing.

The Government is strongly opposed to it but there is a chance the bill has enough support to pass the Lower House.

“This is about Australia’s safety,” Prime Minister Scott Morrison said.

“And Bill Shorten is a clear and present threat to Australia’s safety. Because he is so obsessed with politics, that he cannot see the national interest.”
